LA Lakers star guard Nick Young is back in the headlines. If you recall, Young and a teammate were accused of harassing a motorist and her 68-year-old mother last week.
Now Young is a victim of a different kind of harassment.
It all started when Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell surreptitiously recorded Young about his groupie tales. As the 2 athletes rested in a hotel room before a game, Young told Russell about his adventures with a 19-year-old girl after the club.
"You was 30, she was 19?" Russell asked Young, who turns 31 in June.
When Russell, 20, asked his teammate if he ever "tried" Amber Rose, Young responded, "She not my girl."
Young's 'girl' is wannabe rapper Iggy Azalea, who thanked Russell on Twitter.com for leaking the video.
Azalea and Young are engaged to be married, but the wedding was pushed back for personal reasons.
Somehow, the video fell into the hands of Instagram blogger Fameolous who posted it on his social media pages. From there, the video went viral and was picked up by ESPN and other sports outlets.
Fast forward to Wednesday, when Russell apologized to Young and to his teammates for the ultimate betrayal.
"I feel as sick as possible," Russell said in a news conference before the Lakers beat the Miami Heat 102-100 in overtime. "Been asked 110 times, and my answer and feeling stay same."
Russell denied leaking the video to Fameolous or anyone else.
The former Ohio State guard was shunned by his teammates and booed by the Lakers home crowd before and during the Miami Heat game.
"I can't really show my face anywhere without people hating me right now," Russell said after the game. "I don't know. I try to handle it the right way and remember why I'm here, which is to play basketball."
A Laker source confirmed that Russell, who is rumored to be bisexual, now rooms alone on the road -- at his expense.
But why are grown millionaire athletes still rooming together on the road like they're still in college?
The video is below.
